Alhambra Mayor Gary Yamauchi to hold "Town Hall" on Saturday

Location

Alhambra Civic Library

101 S. First
Alhambra , CA United States

Mayor Gary Yamauchi will hold a town hall meeting this Saturday at the Alhambra library, in an attempt to demonstrate the transparency of the City Council and encourage interaction with residents.

"That’s always a concern of certain people in town, that we’re trying to hide something, we’re making all these backroom decisions," Yamauchi said. "That’s totally not true."

The town hall, which will be the first in a series of three or four, will run in a question-answer format. Expected topics include the consequences of the possible disbanding of the redevelopment agency; 710 Freeway extension; ongoing construction projects; and the fate of the Super A market on Main Street, which had been in talks with a development firm.

The meeting will also include a section on the California High-Speed Rail and the council's efforts to work with the state authority. According to Yamauchi, relations have been chilly thus far, as the council feels that Alhambra has been neglected by the CHSRA.  "It’s the way the'yre doing it: all of a sudden coming in and saying we’re coming in, all of a sudden making up their own guidelines and announcing it to us," Yamauchi said.

The meeting will be held at 9:30 A.M. at the library. Anyone with questions for Yamauchi can email him at [email protected], or call him on his cell phone at (626) 524-4516.
